This is the bed the garlic is supposed to go in. This is also the same bed that's been dug up each night for a week by some animal. Every day I level back the soil and every morning it's been wallowed in again. At least the creature is focusing his efforts in one place instead of the whole garden. The other place they were going to go is where the sweet potatoes are in the corner yard. I figured I'd just go ahead and take those out so the broccoli could have some more sun as well. I started with the other corner yard. This place hasn't gotten more than 30 minutes of sun a day since mid September, so I knew my harvest wouldn't be exciting. I was right:
Very small, and not very exciting. I took a deep sigh and went to remove the tubers from the main corner yard:
WOOHOO!!!!! My veggie scale doesn't go past two pounds, so I made the man get on the scale with the box and weighed that way, these babies were 9.5 pounds! I know it's not as exciting and the tubers aren't as fat as many, but I was rather thrilled. There are a few large ones that will be good for baking, but what do I do with all of the thinner, long ones? Do those just need to get tossed?
I am pretty excited, given the box only got 4-5 hours of sun all year. Not too shabby.
